Had one back in the day. Great amp, and this is a good deal.
All;Would it be a good match with Maggie 1.6, 1.7, or 3.7s? High current?
I've not heard this particular match/interface. But I've heard 1.6 and 3.7 and the 4004 power dynamics many times (actually, I might have heard the 4004 power planars at a show). The match seems perfect IMO: the planars are kind of "round" sounding and the amp is simultaneously punchy, warm, and very detailed, articulate, with superb extension both ends and good power and current.The only thing I might prefer more powering the planars is the $10k/pr Linn Klimax Chakra monos. Warning! Never audition such a setup if you can not afford it! Chakra really is an OTL with SS current.Search "Aragon Magneplanar" and see what people think who owned/heard this match up. Full disclosure: almost absolutely the Aragon output transistors are long gone, but they've obviously been fine so far. Also...anything this old, if the electrolytic caps are original, any and all are subject to sudden death after fifteen years of age (Sprague power supply caps the exception, known to last 30+ years). The more "wet" the caps (in use) the longer they last, and this amp has a long history in use, in the buyer's favor. It would cost probably more than the amp to replace the electrolytics....contact Indy for advice.This is the pro-con of new vs. old. I guess a new 200/400W amp of this sound quality starts at least $3k+.
" has a couple small imperfections "..............can you send me some pictures of these?..........how does the face look?Thanks,Dave
Hi Dave, I'll send close up pictures tomorrow. The face looks good and has no scratches, there are no scratches on the top or bottom, but the sides have some light surface scratches. It is black and the small scratches could be fixed with a Sharpee, but I'd rather leave them unfixed so they show up better in the pictures. It has no dents and has never been dropped. The light works and the on/off switch works fine.
